The problem could either be the latch mechanism itself, or the ear for the rod coming from the lift handle has broken. remove the door panel with the window up and look inside with a flash light. make sure everything is moving. you will probably see that the handle is not moving the rod. simply, replace whats broken. if all the rods are in place and everything is moving then replace the latch mechanism. something has worn internally.

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from too fix???

Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

Door opener

Make sure child safety lock-out is not engaged for this door. There is a latch in the door and it prevents the door from being opened from the interior.

Sorry I do not know the configuration within the door frame. You may or may not need more working room. Some seat bases are removeable and this would allow better access to all parts of the back door.

If you can reach the wire which goes to the electric door lock, you could test if power is going through the wire. If no power when the unlock button is hit, you must trace the wire back to the switch.

Now if you put a 12 volt power source through test wires and bypass the locking mechanism and directly power the individual door lock, it should be possible to set the door lock to an open position. This would allow you to open the door and continue servicing the inside of the door.

Central locking

turn key twice when opening, ie turn right. once drivers door will unlock, turn twice passengers doors will unlock, and locking is turn anti clock wise once will lock all doors, turn twice will set door dead locks.dead locks will stop openand lock internal button working and handle from opening door. the same actions can be applied to the remote one press drivers door, two press passenger doors, press and hold unlock button for 5 seconds and rear window will open.

'02 Freelander 5dr. Tailgate will not open, the window drops but not enough to release tailgate, the window works fine off the facia switch, but the door will not open. How can I open th door ?.

I think that you will need to remove the inside panel of the tailgate to find the exact problem. I would suggest that you take it to an auto glass proffesional (like The Glass Doctor) and have them look at it. They do this every day. If you are going to do the work yourself maybe one of the techs there will let you pick his brain a little.

Passenger door wont open

It wont open from the inside? The outside? or both?. Inside the door panel there is a linkage responsible for opening the doors. If they are not connected then it wont open.
